This thread is fun!
The song came out in 1993 and by that time Obama was teaching con law at University of Chicago and was working as a civil rights attorney - he was 32
years old at the time. I suppose it's very possible a young, 32 year-old lawyer could have agreed to show up in a music video just for fun or maybe
to help out a friend, or some such. It's not beyond the realm of possibility at all.
I couldn't find where the video was shot - I couldn't even figure out where Life Records, the label for the band, is/was based at that time. Tag
Team was an Atlanta band. Something tells me it probably wasn't shot in Chicago, though. But I certainly can't say for certain.
As to the guy in the video, at first glance he sure does look like Obama and that right ear seems to have a very similar shape. On the other hand,
Obama's nose looks a bit more bulbous at the tip than this guy's, even though they are very similarly shaped.
The guy looks a LOT like Obama, but I'm still leaning towards it not being him.
